Add an IDE like capabilities to github

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would share this cool new chrome/firefox addon for https://insight.io that I discovered.

It allows you to quickly search or view the folder/file hierarchy of a repository inside of github.


It also allows you to list the methods of a class


It's very similar to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/octotree/bkhaagjahfmjljalopjnoealnfndnagc, but provides more features.

On the github repo page it shows a insight.io button where you can view the current file on github that you are looking at on insight.io for more features like where specific functions are referenced.

Note: I'm not affiliated with that company.  I just thought it was helpful.

Nice. I had Octotree installed since ages... Any plans to support Gitlab too?

      Tense (Test ENvironment Setup & Execution) is a command-line tool to easily run tests agains multiple versions of ProcessWire CMF.
      Are you building a module, or a template and you need to make sure it works in all supported ProcessWire versions? Then Tense is exactly what you need. Write the tests in any testing framework, tell Tense which ProcessWire versions you are interested in and it will do the rest for you.

      See example or see usage in a real project.
      How to use?
      1. Install it: 
      composer global require uiii/tense 2. Create tense.yml config:
      tense init 3. Run it:
      tense run  
      For detailed instructions see Github page: https://github.com/uiii/tense
      This is made possible thanks to the great wireshell tool by @justb3a, @marcus and others.
      What do you think about it? Do you find it useful? Do you have some idea? Did you find some bug? Tell me you opinion. Write it here or in the issue tracker.

      I just ran into this and thought you guys might like it as well as it seems like a really useful tool to me! It's called Kite and is still in beta, but in the end should be working with your editor of choice. Check out this video on youtube.

      I'm still subscribed to Carl Alexander's blog, which I do not read too often, but his bard new article might be interesting for web developers, especially for those working on a Mac. As he writes:
      "This article goes through the entire process of setting up my new MacBook Pro. It's pretty exhaustive because I talk about why I chose some of the tools that I'm using. I also go over some of the tools that I tried out and didn't end up using."

      Hi all,
      Not sure if this has been asked already but...
      Recently came across an agency with a build script for PW! I was amazed and also bemused, as alot of the script was used to create the right fields and templates in the DB from other local copies, and they'd done this by separating out tens of JSON files with individual field / template export data and sticking it back together on deploy creating new id's adhocly. (a far as i could see as id's were ommited)
      Anyway, in my experience I've always felt that export profile and profile installing has worked well for buiding for live as you get a stable install with your site template, fields and pages.
      If anyone has any scripting experience with PW I would love to know:
      Anyone else use build tools?
      What do you use them for with PW?
      and what languages/environment you use to create them?
